Stand By Me

No I won't be afraid
Oh, I won't be afraid
Just as long as you stand, stand by me.

Float like a butterfly . . .


by Dick Mac


He floats like a butterfly and stings like a bee,
Muhammad Ali, the Black Superman!

The Boxer

by Dick Mac

In the clearing stands a boxer,
And a fighter by his trade
And he carries the reminders
Of ev'ry glove that laid him down
And cut him till he cried out
In his anger and his shame,
"I am leaving, I am leaving."
But the fighter still remains.

The Boxer,
     Simon & Garfunkel, 1969


"I'm so mean I make medicine sick!"
     Muhammad Ali, RIP (1942 - 2016)
